Disabling the Network Access Protection client agent in Configuration Manager 2007 has the following results:
Network Access Protection is disabled for the site, which means that status information will no longer be current on the Network Access Protection home page and Configuration Manager 2007 automatic remediation will cease to function as soon as NAP-capable clients download their latest machine policy.
The Policies node will no longer be available to view, create, delete, or modify Configuration Manager NAP policies.
The Network Access Protection home page will continue to show the existing data until it is aged out.
